When Daniel Eakins inherits a time machine, he soon realizes that he has enormous power to shape the course of history.

And if he doesn't like the results of the change, he can simply go back in time and talk himself out of making it! But Dan soon finds that there are limits to his powers and forces beyond his control. This replaces 0553290061.
